The Voice of the Rain

And who art thou? said I to the soft-falling shower,
Which, strange to tell, gave me an answer, as here translated:
I am the Poem of Earth, said the voice of the rain,
Eternal I rise impalpable out of the land and the bottomless sea,
Upward to heaven, whence, vaguely form'd, altogether changed, and
yet the same,
I descend to lave the drouths, atomies, dust-layers of the globe,
And all that in them without me were seeds only, latent, unborn;
And forever, by day and night, I give back life to my own origin,
and make pure and beautify it;
(For song, issuing from its birth-place, after fulfilment, wandering,
Reck'd or unreck'd, duly with love returns.)

- Walt Whitman

I feel a very strong attachment to this song, I've never made anything like it. I composed it in the rain, I think it reflects all the emotions I've been feeling lately. It took only 2 days to make, everything just came to me, it's almost as if it wrote itself. I'm still in disbelief that I created it.

Rain/thunder/birds samples are from Freesound.org

Thanks F-777 for helping me brainstorm a title. I happened to find this poem when googling my prospective title, I decided to dedicate the song to it.

Nice effects

For a large portion of the song it was a loop until you begin to hear the storm brewing near the end. I do not mind the storm near the end, however it seems to drag on as the rain fads away. I would suggest shortening the song by 1.5-2 minutes, to eliminate some of the repetitiveness. Adding more variation would help as well, very few additions or changes are made throughout the song. I understand this is an emotional song, and have to admit the rain effects along with the thunder are well done. Overall it is all right, and with a little tweaking it would be great.

Thanks for the review, I agree it needs some changes. If I end up putting it into an album I'll have it fade out into the next song to cut off some of the end, along with adding some more variation. For now though, I think it's good enough and I don't want to resubmit a different version.

Excelent

I know it was very repetitive but still, I really liked it. It was very relaxing. It just had everything an ambient track should have. and more. The rain effects were perfect. A great song. Nothing more needs to be said :D
